So... it's all changed everyone.... I keep on looking on a process to recover a lost Google Analytics account based on the UA-xxxxxxx id.  Everyones links are pointing towards self-help pages, which do not help or AdWords which I have just called via telephone and the AdWords team is outsourced and do not have access.


Is there anyway that I can find out the user account/email address, and password reset this based on a Google Analytics UA-xxxxxxxxx-x account id?


Thank you all for your help in advance,

#2 Upload the text file to the root of the domain that you’re requesting access for. If your website url is, you should be able to visit the text file via


#3 Contact a Google Analytics specialist via the following link:


This should allow you to speak with someone at Google and they will help you unlock your account. 


Let me know if this solves your problem!
